With a 96% versus 4% vote the shareholders of LFP1 yesterday dismissed the current board of directors, headed by David Mapley. Mapley got suspended by the Luxemburg regulator CSSF earlier this year for lying about his credentials when applying for his directorship at LFP1.
In a stormy EGM, shareholders cast their mistrust by dismissing David Mapley, Tudor Fedeles and Jacques Bossuyt as board members by an overwhelming majority.
The shareholders will nominate a new board shortly at a yet to be convened EGM. Furthermore, they filed a 40 million euro claim for damages against the former management.
Two years ago David Mapley who falsely claimed to be a fraud investigator at “Intel Suisse” took over the management of the fund after allegedly having discovered fraud. Later on, it turned out that Mapley had a fraudulent record himself and that his investigation firm “Intel Suisse” simply does not exist. It was further discovered how Mapley abused his mandate at LFP1 to extort one of the shareholders of the fund for over 2 million euros.
Events accelerated after Luxemburg commercial court, appointed last month a court administrator to convene an EGM at the request of shareholders to seek replacement of the board.
